But following an address he made earlier on the evening of September 29, Jeb Bush rejected Hartington’s statement, implying that his father was not healthy enough to make a sound endorsement.
“I thought that was inappropriate,” he said of her release of that comment, because his father is only a “frail, 92-year-old man(.)”
But the Republican former president isn’t the only Bush who at least implied support for this race’s Democratic nominee. Jeb’s mother, Barbara Bush, has also suggested she’s voting for Clinton, and with attacks on Trump for his sexist, anti-feminine comments.
Jeb’s sister-in-law Laura Bush also implied support for Clinton over Republican nominee Donald Trump, and niece Barbara openly supported the Democratic nominee as far back as three years ago, calling Clinton “unbelievably accomplished(.)”
At his meeting with press, Jeb Bush wouldn’t say who he’s voting for, only stipulating that it won’t be Clinton or Trump. Along with that insult about his father, he stooped even lower by encouraging others to skip this year’s elections.
"Well, if everybody didn't vote, that would be a pretty powerful political statement, wouldn't it?"
Jeb Bush dropped out of the Republican contest in February, following a dismal finish in its third primary contest. He only acquired four delegates.
He says he will not vote for Trump or Clinton, but won’t endorse another candidate.
